In 1956 Cochrane teamed up with Capehart and was signed to Liberty in 1957, although he still appeared on the labels of friends Capehart and Sylvester Cross- spending time in LA's Gold Star studio producing, writing and recording backing vocals on labels such as Crest, Zephyr, Crash, Vik, along with Silver, on which he recorded "Guybo"- also known as 'Drum City'. He also appeared in two films
Cochran was born October 3, 1938, in Albert Lea, Minnesota, to Alice and Frank R. Cochran. His parents were from Oklahoma, and he always said in interviews that his parents had some roots in Oklahoma. He took music lessons in school but quit the band to play drums. In July 1956, Eddie Cochran's first "solo artist" single was released by Crest Records. It featured "Skinny Jim", now regarded as a rock-and-roll and rockabilly classic. In the spring of 1956, Boris Petroff asked Cochran if he would appear in the musical comedy film The Girl Can't Help It. Cochran agreed and performed the song "Twenty Flight Rock" in the movie. There were only a few rockers on this album, and Liberty seemed to want to move Cochran away from Rock and Roll. International breakthrough (1958–1959)
The title The Year 1957 carries an air of documentary to it, so it's no surprise that this 2018 Bear Family collection does play a bit like a history lesson, telling the story of a pivotal 12 months in Eddie Cochran's career. During this year, Cochran scored his first Top 40 hit with the sultry slow-burner "Sittin' in the Balcony" and cut the swinging rock & roll standard "Twenty Flight Rock," along with several other fine sides for Liberty, many of which were issued on the album Singing to My Baby
Handel - Air with Variations - Harmonious Blacksmith. This compilation was released by Liberty Records in 1960, shortly after Eddie Cochran's death that spring, the first of several memorial albums (including one called Memorial Album) to come out on Cochran. And while it doesn't really live up to its title - sad to say, Cochran never had a dozen hits, big or otherwise, to compile - it is a surprisingly good collection as an overview of Cochran's career and sound (flaws and all), the hits included. But this album starts off on the right foot, with "C'mon Everybody" - one of Cochran's best songs but never a huge hit in the . leading off the set, which proceeds with the deceptively complex rocker "Three Steps to Heaven.
When playing with Hank Cochran, Eddie Cochran played a Gibson electric acoustic guitar with a single florentine cutaway. This guitar featured a pair of Gibson P90 pickups, sometimes called ‘dog ear’ pickups due to their shape. Later, Cochran moved to a 1956 Gretsch 6120 Chet Atkins Western model, which Eddie had modified. He replaced the neck position De Armond Dynasonic pickup with a black covered Gibson P-90 pickup. He also used acoustic guitars. In 1956, Boris Petroff asked Cochran if he would appear in the musical comedy film The Girl Can’t Help It. He agreed and sang a song.
